    Multi-jointed Horde Captain Adora !!!!

    Okay, that's the longest time I've spent on ANY custom before...
    And I think it's my best work so far.

    http://photobucket.com/albums/v629/oulala/Adora/

    I had to wait for about 2 years to get the right parts to do this custom which truly kicks ass. It is made of (mostly) a Marvel Legends Scarlet Witch prototype (clear white plastic), a Marvel Legends Scarlet Witch. The cape of the latter was cut, sliced and turned into the top jacket. The rest is my secret receipe... Millions of little bits are actually glued to this toy. Oh, and you can't really see on the pics but there are bat-horde logos on the front of her boots.
    I'm entering the Custom of the Year contest with Adora and I hope I'll win something!

    I'm not a fan of super articulated figures. They usually detract from the artwork of the sculpt itself. That said, I can see a lot of love and attention to detail in this piece. Good job.
    Like customizing classic figs? Want to play the part of Mattel and design figures from existing fodder but you lack supplies? Bored?! Then try out the Classic Character Creation Compiler today!

    Great job Oulala! Your Adora custom is totally hot. She has the proportions of a supermodel and still captures Adoras character.
    Does anyone have a model sheet from the show so we could do a side by side comparason?
    Now if we could just get the 4H to distribute her!

    Thanks. I used Wikipedia for a side-by-side design. I basically re-imagined her red horde uniform, leaving some black on the shoulder to make her look kinda evil, and adding a lot of gold for the 'royal' feel. The top jacket made of rubber was sculpted from the Scarlet Witch's cape, that was not easy!

    very cool!
    I love her, and all the wonderful poses you put her in. The only thing I was wary of was that she is taller than adam, but she is AWESOME so it doesn't matter!

    Hey AWESOME job.

    Now you can easily make a stop-motion movie with your customs, that would be great, to me the best way of making a Motu movie would be this one, because there are no limits. I read that you work in movies so try doing it.

    Do you? No I didn't copy yours. I've been doing rerooting for quite some time actually! Here's another of my works.

    Oh I wasn't touchy Alessandra! I was just joking! But I hate rerooting so much it takes aaaaaaages on big dolls, Adora was much easier!
    I loved your Adora custom so much I decided to make one! I especially liked your bracelets so I added the gold patterns on mine after looking at yours!
